Weekly Verse – Middle School Musical

It was an exciting weekend at our house.  My youngest performed in her very first theater production…  a musical put on by some students from her middle school.

The show was called “Dorothy In Wonderland”… kind of a mashup of “The Wizard Of Oz” and “Alice in Wonderland”.

They’ve been working hard on it for weeks;  memorizing lines, blocking scenes, and creating the perfect costumes for their characters.

All that time wasn’t spent in the classroom but I know that they learned skills that are easily transferable to the real world.

They learned:

  • To work together.
  • The ability to take direction.
  • To think on your feet.
  • To improvise.
  • To be creative.
  • Confidence.
  • To be comfortable in front of a crowd.
  • To accept constructive criticism.
  • To be able to give constructive criticism.
  • To work hard.
  • The importance of being part of a team.

I’m extremely proud of my daughter and her friends.  They were fantastic!

This week’s Bible verse is for them… all those hard working, creative middle schoolers.  It’s 1 Timothy 4:12 (GNT).

“Do not let anyone look down on you because you are young, but be an example for the believers in your speech, your conduct, your love, faith, and purity.”
